    The recall covers over 180,000 Jeep Wrangler SUV’s from the 2016 and 2017 model years with air bag issues - all in the US and Canada.

    Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than 250,000 vehicles because of a variety of issues, including air bags not inflating during a crash.

    The recall covers over 180,000 Jeep Wrangler SUV’s from the 2016 and 2017 model years with air bag issues - all in the US and Canada.

    In government documents, Fiat Chrysler says wiring to a sensor can come loose, cutting off signals to an air bag computer. If that happens, the seat belt pretensionsers won't work and the air bag won't deploy.

    The problem was discovered during company crash tests. Fiat Chrysler recalled nearly 1.9 million vehicles worldwide last month for the same problem.

    Also recalled were nearly 75,000 Dodge vehicles that have a potential fire risk after tests were conducted. Those models include: Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups, 3500, 4500 and 5500 chassis cabs from the model years 2007 to 2013 as well as Dodge Charger Pursuits from the model years 2011 to 2014.
